♦ St Paul Pastoral Council
Vickie Anderson – Vice-Chairperson
I was born in Eldorado, Illinois. My mother, Father and I later moved close to St Louis, Mo. Growing up I attended St Joseph Catholic School and then public high school in Granite City, IL. I was involved at St Joseph as a Eucharistic Minister, served on the Finance committee, and the Parish Council, plus worked Bingo. I married Bill Anderson, have two step-children and six grandchildren, plus one great grandchild. After Bill retired in 2002, we moved to Lake of Egypt, where we attended St Joseph Church in Marion. I served as a Eucharistic Minister and Hospitality Minister. I served on the Ladies Guild as an officer for four years. After I retired, I began volunteering first at the Food Pantry, then the Hands of Hope, a free medical clinic in Marion (now closed). I have also been involved with the BDCCW for over seven years. Also the last ten years I have been Co-Captain for coordinating groups of ladies to attend the Women’s annual retreat at King’s House in Belleville. I feel motivated to serve St Paul Church by volunteering for the Parish Council.

∙Joan Galey – Liturgy Committee
I’ve been a member of St. Paul for about 14 years. During that time I’ve participated in various ways with great joy. Some of them are: PSR teacher 4 years, cantor, lector, extraordinary eucharistic minister and Altar Sodality member. Most recently I’ve become active in the Liturgy Committee with eagerness to see the parish grow even more in faith. I have a broad perspective of many issues and ideas from a lifetime of experiences from California to Nevada to Kentucky to finally here. I know what it is to be in a large family, I am the youngest of my parents 5 children. I also know what it is to be alone, my 20 year marriage was annulled quickly. My son Jake is grown and lives in Paducah. My education has many faucets including an Associate of Applied Science and an A.A. I have a great interest in being more involved now, with your approval and prayerful support. Thank you!
